When I first moved to LA I met Jim DeJulio a truly great bass player out of the legendary Ray Brown mold. Jim did his first album using several of his favorite players as guests artists including Bill Watrous, Eddie Daniels and myself. It was a swinging session with the great Roy McCurdy on drums who was with Cannonball Adderly. I did 2 be -bop classics “Dewey Square” and “Confirmation”. Steve Allen did the liner notes and it was the first time he heard me which led to me doing his album on Concord.
